Some of our volunteersVolunteering enables supporters to become more involved with a charity that is close to their heart.  It gives people the opportunity to make friends, to learn new skills and to represent the Charity in a more formal way.

We have an incredible team of volunteers who work incredibly hard on our behalf.  Together they cover 2,636 square miles between them.  That’s a big challenge as you can imagine and we urgently need others to join us.

People donate their time for a number of reasons, but the most common is: personal satisfaction, to do something worthwhile, to be active or to have social contact.

By becoming a Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance volunteer you can expect to have an exceptional support team who will encourage and support you in every way.  We can also guarantee that you will meet some extraordinary people.
